Hologic Discovery Bone Density Machine

The Hologic Discovery bone density machine helps identify patients at risk for osteoporosis and fractures with exceptional precision and accuracy

Hologic Discovery Overview

The Hologic Discovery helps identify patients at risk for osteoporosis and fractures with exceptional precision and accuracy. It also provides the highest resolution vertebral imaging for the visualization of abdominal aortic calcifications, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and vertebral fractures. It also has Advanced Body Composition assessment that displays the distribution of fat, lean tissue, and bones.
